ColusAbundance Food Recovery Program


ColusAbundance is an innovative food recovery project in Colusa County working to save perfectly good food from going to waste. Using a MealConnect, nationally known food recovery online system, we mobilize volunteers to transport food donations from food retailers to local non-profits. ColusAbundance aims to fill food security gaps in our communities, using rescued food.

  • Whole Food Vendors

  • Health Facilities
  • Large Events & Venues
  • Cafeterias

The Food Rescue Journey



We have extra! When a food retail partner has unsold or surplus food, they either contact ColusAbundance, or plan weekly scheduled pickups at their site.


We're on our way! ColusAbundance then assigns  scheduled or special pickup requests to a volunteer, who delivers it to a food pantry in the same community.


We weigh and report: Our volunteer weighs donated food and enters it into MealConnect, which provides monthly reports to the retail partners, including an annual tax deductible donation receipt!   



We give it away: The local food pantry will provide the donated food to those in need.
